COVID-19 Vaccine

Indiana residents age 16 and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Remember, you can get vaccinated at any site in Indiana. You can register HERE

Vaccinations for Students, Faculty, and Staff

Notre Dame was informed by the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) that the University will be permitted to set up a vaccination center on campus in mid-April to serve students, faculty, and staff. IDOH has indicated that Notre Dame will receive enough Pfizer vaccine for every student—undergraduate, professional, and graduate—to be fully vaccinated with the requisite two doses before our spring semester concludes. If you are already scheduled to be vaccinated at a local vaccination site, please keep that appointment. Where possible, faculty and staff are encouraged to continue to utilize the vaccination sites in the local community. The University will provide more details about the campus vaccination site as they receive them from the state. 

Documenting your COVID-19 Vaccine

After you have received either the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine or a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine, the University is asking that you upload your vaccination documentation into PyraMed.

1.    Scan or take a picture of your vaccination card.
2.    Access the portal at
3.    Click on the red text link on the landing page directing you to fill out your pending forms.
4.    Open the form for COVID Vaccination – Faculty or Staff.
5.    Choose the option to share your one or two-dose vaccine information. 

NOTE: If you received the two-dose series, make sure that you have completed both doses before uploading any information.
